Quite a few celebrities have been reconnecting of late. But it was Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s reignited romance that made all of our “Jenny From The Block”-themed dreams come true. But is it a dream or a nightmare concerning the third parties involved? Reports continue to circulate that Affleck’s ex-wife Jennifer Garner perhaps feels a certain kind of way about him getting back with his ex-fiancé from before their marriage.
It's an interesting dynamic, to be sure. Ben Affleck married his former Daredevil co-star Jennifer Garner in 2005, only a year after breaking off his engagement with Jennifer Lopez. Affleck and Garner have now been divorced since 2018, but he is seemingly back together with his former Gigli and Jersey Girl co-star JLo again. Despite the seeming awkwardness of their romance from the outside, insiders are painting a much more friendly picture. A source told ETOnline:
JLo and Ben's families are getting along great and they are making an effort to take things slow when it comes to their kids. [JLo] is so happy with Ben. He is so laid-back and chill and he makes her laugh nonstop. He is caring, sweet and supportive of her, but not competitive with her when it comes to their careers and fame.
It appears that everyone is making the best of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s revived relationship. Only a few weeks ago, it was reported that Jennifer Garner even gave her seal of approval. But it's an actor’s curse that there to be such a high interest in their love life. Garner is evidently facing down other speculation about her own possibly rekindled relationship with ex-boyfriend John Miller, according to US Weekly.
However, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have always been publicly supportive of each other – no matter what is going on in their dating worlds. The Batman actor even posted the sweetest tribute to the mother of his three kids on Mother's Day. But the speculation of JLo and Affleck’s family supposedly “getting along great” might actually have further credence.
Ahead of the 4th of July festivities, on Friday, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were reportedly spotted at Universal Studios Hollywood. JLo brought her twins from her previous marriage to Marc Anthony and Affleck brought his 9-year-old son from his previous marriage to Jennifer Garner. Together, the two walked hand-in-hand and were seen smiling as they went on rides together. So perhaps Garner is, at the very least, allowing the two families to start getting to know each other better.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, JLo’s ex Alex Rodriguez (who she had just ended their engagement with, weeks prior to getting back with Ben Affleck) is allegedly fine about the Bennifer romance. He has even taken to commenting on JLo’s friend’s posts and moving down the street from her to prove it.
A-Rod aside, it seems there’s a new Ben and Jen in town, and the previous Jen doesn’t really mind too much either.
